    Based on these traffic numbers, what kind of server specs am I going to be looking at on a VPS to run Magento for this site?

    srsly :dunno:? I must be missing something :o



    Anyways...I'm looking at the linode 1080 package w/ 1GB RAM. http://www.linode.com

    Should this be enough for Magento to run well on?

    is that a furniture site you're running?

    :ugh: either someone is trolling on here or they really are dumb that they dont know what stats program that is

    and if i were you, id go with hostgator dedicated. magento is resource hog, i can take down any magento site if i make huge query search requests within a small matter of time.

    make sure you have your execution time properly set for 30 seconds, and more than a certain number requests per certain amount of time cut off (host gator will write you this script).

    atleast 4gb ram

    $279 / mo is worth it because you're paying host gator for quality uptime.

    I know....that's what I want. I've got 2 managed VPS's right now and I rarely ask for support on anything. On the few occasions I have, I usually end up solving the issue myself before they're able to. Definitely not worth an extra $50/month imo.

    Magento primarily needs fast disks (ideally SAS drives, for all the includes it does), plenty of RAM and fast PHP execution.

    The best way to run Magento is with an instance of memcached, as well as with PHP opcode caching (e.g. APC).

    Dedicated hardware tends to be better for Magento than virtualization, but that's more of a slur against most companies' virtualization setups more than anything.

    if youre really getting that much traffic to a store you should be able to afford a managed dedicated box @ liquid web. you'll want that support to install the necessary shit for magento...

    10K RPM SCSI drives in RAID10 / DDR400 ECC RAM / Xeon 800FSB 3.6GHz CPU's. Parallels Virtualization.

    ^You think a VPS on that hardware would cut it? Ram could easily be added as needed, but disk I/O is a different story. They have a 30 day money back guarantee....wonder if I could use something like Siege to load test it?

    It's a client of mine. I'll be hosting and managing it, just trying to get an idea of what's it's going to cost me.

    Even if I got a dedicated box w/ liquid I'd still prefer to install everything myself. I've done it from scratch multiple times on local VMWare dev machines. Not that difficult if you do a little research first.
